2017-2018 Instructional Calendar Survey

We will begin working to develop our 2017-18 Instructional Calendar immediately after returning from the Thanksgiving holiday break so that we can continue to have a calendar one year in advance. If you will recall, our school board approved calendars last year for the current school year and the 2016-17 school year. It is important to the calendar committee that we have input to consider from various stakeholders as a part of this process. Please take a moment to respond to our calendar survey by accessing the link below. The survey is currently open and will remain open through Monday, November 30, 5:00 p.m. Thank you in advance for your participation and thoughtful responses.

Provide Feedback on the Revised Tennessee Math and ELA Standards

The State Board of Education launched the review website (here) to collect public feedback on Tennessee’s newly revised grade K-­12 math and English language arts (ELA) standards. After the first round of public feedback, Tennessee educators revised the math and ELA standards. Those revised standards are now available for another round of public review. The revised standards will be available for feedback online through mid-­November.
